Who are these courses for?

These courses will work for you if you are looking for a fully tutor supported horticulture or garden course that is not a huge commitment, that doesn’t cost you the earth but will still get you thinking and learning and most importantly get you result you want.  Many students do a single subject as a stepping stone to a bigger thing, or find its enough to help start their enterprise, make their garden grow, or gain a job in horticulture.

 

Who are the tutors?

You will get a real tutor who provides you with personalised support and feedback.  No tick and flick.  Learn with real tutors who will be there for you every step of the way.  When you enroll will receive a welcome email from your tutor.  You are free to email them for help or guidance as much as you need to.  We employ tutors who are active in their field so the support is by email.

Do I need to know about gardening and plants before i start?

No, our garden and horticulture certificate courses assume no prior knowledge and are designed as a practical guide to help you learn.

What sort of support do I get?

All our courses come with unlimited experienced and expert tutor support via email.  We only employ tutors who are current in their field which means they are not sitting around our office waiting for phone calls!  We find email works best, if there is a problem that can’t be resolved give us a call on 07 5536 8783 or email our student support desk.

What is the course duration?

Generally the courses should take you about 100 hours of study.  We give you up to 12 months to complete the course, but you can finish faster.  Each lesson has a written assignment for you will receive individual feedback from your tutor.  There are also self assessment quizzes for each lesson (non assessable).  The strength of our courses is in that each lesson has an assignment, this means you are forced to engage with the content and can’t just skip over an important lesson.  By the end of the course you have really engaged and that equals learning!
